Staff Reviews


This compelling story has lingered in my heart since the moment I finished the last page. It talks about love and acceptance, about learning to trust in others. It's about growing and expanding beyond the pain of the past and shaping your own destiny. It was a truly beautiful read that I think anybody who's looking to change their destiny will enjoy.

— Emma

Description


From award-winning author Mark Oshiro comes a powerful coming-of-age fantasy novel about finding home and falling in love amidst the dangers of a desert where stories come to life

Xochitl is destined to wander the desert alone, speaking her troubled village's stories into its arid winds. Her only companions are the blessed stars above and enigmatic lines of poetry magically strewn across dusty dunes.

Her one desire: to share her heart with a kindred spirit.

One night, Xo's wish is granted—in the form of Emilia, the cold and beautiful daughter of the town's murderous conqueror. But when the two set out on a magical journey across the desert, they find their hearts could be a match... if only they can survive the nightmare-like terrors that arise when the sun goes down.

Fresh off of Anger Is a Gift's smashing success, Oshiro branches out into a fantastical direction with their new YA novel, Each of Us a Desert.

A Macmillan Audio production from Tor Teen
